Hacker Trespasser Exception

LinuxElectrons has an pointer to Congressional testimony concerning The Hacker Trespasser Exception. It's an interesting read. I just wish that lawmakers would refrain from using slang terms (such as hacker) when writing laws. That sort of thing always requires rewriting of the law after years of judicial interpretation of what the use of the slang term actually meant and the intent of the law that's wrapped around it.
